Pregnant With Ebola: A survivor's tale

Around the time that the World Health Organization (WHO) finally declared the Ebola epidemic in West Africa an international public health emergency, a young woman named Adama Kargbo learned she was pregnant. A few months later, she contracted the virus and was admitted to an Ebola treatment center in Kissy, a suburb of Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown. She lost her baby, but against all odds, she survived, overcoming the hemorrhagic fever which has killed more than 8,600 people in west Africa.
